Dulwich Choral Society was founded in 1944. Today it is a thriving, friendly choir that performs at least three concerts a year, including two with professional orchestras and top-class soloists. Since 2006 Aidan Oliver, one of the UK's leading choral conductors, has been the Musical Director.

As well as giving concerts in the Dulwich area, the choir has performed more widely in central London and abroad. Since 1998 the choir has undertaken tours to Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Germany and Estonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina; in 2014 the choir continued this tradition with a four day visit to Portugal, performing in Sintra and Lisbon. Closer to home the choir performs in several of the beautiful churches in and around Dulwich, and enjoys a strong local following.

If you would like to support the choir, you can find details of our Friends and Patrons scheme here.
